I'm looking for a feature musical for my mother. I've already sent her "Royal Wedding" and "Till the Clouds Roll By" and she really enjoyed those. I'm looking at "Rhythm and Blues Revue" but I'd like to add a full length movie to that. Can people give me recommendations on the Archive?

Try Jimmy Stewart in "Pot o' Gold." I loved that one, and the music is pretty good. And Stewart is his usual charming self.

There's also "Girl o' my Dreams," which I haven't seen, but it got good reviews.

The Steven Foster flick (Harmony Lane) is delightful, although it's a choppy print. I sent it to my Mom and she liked it. "The Great Rupert" (Christmas coming) should be a Divx up in a day or so. "Forbidden Music" has Richard Tauber singing a few tunes, great copy.
If I can get a PD "Amen" on "Rose of Washington Square", "Sun Valley Serenade" "I Dood It" and a few others.....it would be nice. Most of the good ones (Benny Goodman, Five Pennies, Glenn Miller) are all copyrighted.

Thanks folks, these are some good leads. I know she's a Jimmy Stewart fan, Pot o' Gold sounds like a winner.

I'm a little curious about the comment about Bob Eberly's paperboy, though. Does anyone know what that's about?

His true name was "Eberle", and I was fortunate enough to have him on one of my newspaper routes, but I knew him then only as "Mr. Eberle"

I wondered about the spelling. You had it one way and IMDb had it another. So you delivered newspapers to one of the greats. :)
